The Last of the Honky-tonk AngelsBook - 2003
Lucy Hatch returns, with Texan humor and audacity, as her boyfriend shocks her when he receives a surprise visit from his daughter, Denny, whose existence he had kept hidden, as they all embark on a life full of new experiences, revelations, and opportunities sure to change everything. Reprint.
On a lazy June morning in Mooney -- a wooded patch of sparsely populated northeast Texas -- a shiny red Chrysler sedan pulls up to the home of Lucy Hatch and Ash Farrell, depositing a teenage girl on their doorstep before speeding away. For Ash, town carpenter and musician, the unheralded arrival of the daughter he hasn't seen in nearly eight years is a life-altering shock. It's certain to further complicate Lucy's increasingly complex relationship with Ash as well, now that she has discovered she is pregnant with his child. And angry, rebellious Denny must learn to live with a father she barely knows and the stranger who now shares his life -- in a town far tinier than any that has imprisoned her before -- as they all search for that elusive common bond that will help them become, at last, that most rare and precious thing: a family.
From the acclaimed author of The Second Coming of Lucy Hatch comes a funny, poignant, startling and uplifting novel of love and forgiveness that will remind every reader how good it is to be alive.
